Which Shapeoko should I buy?

The Shapeoko 4 is around 80-90% of the performance of the Shapeoko Pro, so there’s not a bad decision to make between the two.

  • If you’re going to use it all the time, or you’re the ultimate tool nerd, grab the Shapeoko Pro as long at the price difference isn’t a problem for you.

  • If you’re going to use it intermittently, or if you prefer a less expensive option, then grab the Shapeoko 4, the V-wheels are lower maintenance than the linear rails.

Whichever version your choose, you Shapeoko CNC Router will become one of the most productive power tools in your shop.

Believe it or not, the machine is the easy part.

Shapeoko is a rigid, accurate and reliable CNC router, but the CNC machine itself only gets you halfway there. You’re going to need a lot more than just a machine to complete a project. Luckily, we include all of that too!

Hybrid Table

Shapeoko Pro is built on our Hybrid Table, and the same Hybrid Table is available as an option for the Shapeoko 4. It acts as a rigid base for the machine and a very flexible workholding system.

Structurally, it’s made from a grid of custom-made extrusions that create a solid platform to build a CNC router on.

The Hybrid Table has a series of T-slots to hold clamps, vises, or the material being cut directly.

Between the T-slots, there are sacrificial MDF slats for your material to rest on.

Workholding Included

Shapeoko 4 and Pro come with a dirty dozen of our Teez-Nutz and six of our fiber-reinforced nylon Essential Clamps that won’t break your cutter if they get hit.

When paired with our Hybrid Table, this is everything you need to hold down many common materials but we have plenty of other options if you find that you want something more specialized.

Dust Collection Included

Shapeoko includes our Sweepy V2 dust boot to help keep your Shapeoko CNC router, and your shop, as clean as possible. It works with a range of hose diameters for maximum compatibility with your vacuum:

  • 2.5” Direct hose
  • 2.25” Shop vacuum
  • 36mm Festool/Fein

Sweepy V2 also includes an additional brush-free base if you want maximum visibility at the expense of a little dust.

BitSetter Included (PRO ONLY)

Shapeoko Pro has a built-in BitSetter, our system that makes tool changes a breeze by automatically tracking changes to tool length.

Out of every accessory we’ve ever made, the BitSetter is our favorite.

BitSetter is available as an add-on for Shapeoko 4 here.

Carbide Create 2D CAD/CAM

Carbide Create is our 2D CAD/CAM computer program for your Windows or Mac. Carbide Create lets you design your projects and then define the toolpaths to actually cut them out. You can start with a blank page, load a DXF or SVG file, or load an image to trace automatically.

The best part is that Carbide Create is totally free so you can try it out today.

Carbide Motion

Carbide Motion loads gcode, the industry standard for CNC routers, and makes the machine follow that motion.

We follow common gcode standards so you can generate your projects in Carbide Create or any other CAD/CAM program that uses normal gcode. We don’t lock you into our CAD/CAM software.

CutRocket- Projects Ready-to-Cut

If you’d like to start with complete projects that others have shared, we’ve got our CutRocket CNC project sharing site.

Unlike other project sharing sites, CutRocket is only for CNC projects so you won’t find a bunch of stuff made for 3D printers.

Download projects and start cutting right away.

(We’re sure that you’ll be uploading your own projects in no time.)

The Carbide 3D community is full of other Shapeoko owners doing everything from playing around in their garage to making a full income from their machines. You’ll find the community eager to help, inspire and teach.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shapeoko takes 2-3 hours to assemble. Most of that time is spent on the Hybrid Table, which has a lot of screws, but the payoff is a rigid machine with great workholding.
Yes! Shapeoko can run 2D or 3D toolpaths with all motors moving simultaneously.
Shapeoko itself is very quiet. All of the noise comes from the spindle (a trim router) and the shop vacuum, if you use one.
Unfortunately, we've done the math on the and it really ends up being cost prohibitive to upgrade from a Shapeoko 4 to a Shapeoko Pro.
You cannot upgrade the size of a Shapeoko 4 or Pro. Upgrading from one size to another doesn't actually save much money from the price of a new machine.
Shapeoko 4 and Pro and use any 65mm spindle including the Carbide Compact Router, Makita RT0701C trim router, or 65mm VFD spindles.
We have a lot of users running Vectric software with their Shapeoko.
Fusion 360 comes with a Carbide 3D post processor that works with Shapeoko.
Shapeoko can cut any type of wood from pine, to MDF to hard woods like white oak.
Shapeoko can cut any common plastic including ABS, acrylic, polycarbonate, Delrin, HDPE, and PEEK
Shapeoko can cut aluminum but it will cut slower and than wood and plastic so you'll want to take your time with it.
Shapeoko can cut brass but it will cut slower and than wood, plastic and aluminum so you'll need to take your time with it.
Shapeoko can cut brass and aluminum but harder metals, like steel or stainless steel, are not recommended. We have users that have done it, but cutting steel takes a lot more skill and experiance.
